Weekend weather (from the stand-in forecaster)

Friday saw two cold fronts cross Britain. The associated depression moves north of Scotland over night and through Saturday. This leaves England in the windy south-west sector of the low. The wind will be SW to W at about 20kt with gusts to 35kt – this is out side my comfort zone so I will not not be flying Saturday – otherwise it will be a pleasant, sunny day.

Sunday, with high pressure building from the south-west, is a more promising day with lighter W to NW winds decreasing from a maximum sustained speed of 14kt mid morning. This synoptic scale wind will keep sea breezes at bay. The cloud base should be at least 4000 feet, the only snag is that the developing anti-cyclone may cause an inversion
with consequent strato-cumulus cloud forming in the afternoon.
